:The Family History Library Catalog is based on a static image (snapshot) of England jurisdictions as of 1865. Other FamilySearch projects used a snapshot as of 1851 (i.e., maps). Since the wiki has links to the catalog and to maps, there is strong reason to remain true to that snapshot and let modern changes be reflected in explanatory pages.
